NKF Today launches brand new website
The nkf today launches a brand new website to serve the 60,000 patients with End Stage Renal failure, and the 2,000,000 UK residents with early stage Chronic kidney Disease.
The website is also intended as a central hub for all renal specialists. It can be found at www.kidney.org.uk
For 14 years the nkf has operated a website which has grown to 5,000 pages in size and has been viewed by more than 2 million people a year from around the world. Widely respected, and regarded as central to renal treatment and provision, by patients, carers, Transplant Surgeons, Nephrologists and nurses, the website has become the hub of the renal community.
The website was originally created by a renal patient, who won the tender from the nkf following a written examination. Over the years it has expanded exponentially and when the original creator died of renal failure, was carried on by a his close friend and fellow webmaster, however the website has now taken another leap forward by becoming fully professional and all-encompassing in a modern and easier to navigate website. We hope that all patients of whatever age and technical ability will continue to find this website both helpful and informative, and that renal professional and the Press and Media will regard this as an invaluable resource.
